Solid Motor Rocket Propulsion
AbstractWhat does it take to launch a satellite to explore Mars, or a mission to the moon? This project has several possible variations for exploring the physics of rockets. This is rocket science!
The objective of this project is to measure changes in a rocket's performance based on differences in the rocket's motor.

The type or motor used for the rocket
The speed of the rocket
The more powerful the motor, the faster the rocket will move.
